This audio tour takes about forty-five minutes, and has a simple circular route, with, in the main, good directions (I only got lost once). Narrated by Barry Ferns in a lovely calming tone (nice contrast to the madness you wander through) and interspersed with conversations with various comedians reminiscing about their fringe experiences, it’s a brilliant way to fill in a gap between shows – or get to know a bit of Edinburgh.
I did find myself a little…lost, standing in the middle of a street, listening to a story, wondering where I was going next. But there are lots of people doing that at the Fringe. I did, however, really enjoy the different tasks and suggestions along the way, even if I didn’t do all of them. My especial favourite was the review wall.
This tour is just long enough, and full of silly entertaining humour. Lovely.
